The Supply Chain Skills Development Fund ( SCSDF)

“Norfolk and Suffolk are working together to provide the Supply Chain Skills Development Fund. Flexible, co-funded training is now available for your employees to enhance and develop their skills and knowledge; making your business more effective, competitive, and able to exploit new contracting opportunities and ready to support growth within the region.

This project will help you, as a local employer, to identify the competencies and capabilities that you will need in your workforce, in order to fully capitalise on opportunities resulting from large-scale infrastructure projects happening in the Norfolk and Suffolk area over the course of the next couple of years.

Make sure your business benefits from grants between £500 – £5000 (max £1000 per employee and matched 50% by employer investment) for a wide range of training courses
from colleges and training providers.”
